    I understand veganism for health reasons (I think you once said that you were mostly if not completely vegan, Tony), but saving the world? Don’t make me laugh.

  2. Archie says:

    Thank you! This one made my day. :D

    Also reminded of the term, “Fossil Fuel Vegetarian.”

    It’s those eyes!!

    The eyes of a true fanatic!

      Love it!
      Let’s face it they’re truly terrified!
      People keep repeating what they hear on the news!
      No true thought
      Just panic…

    I realize that this is a humorous video, but the recommendations that experts make for a vegan diet does take into account that all of those steps along the way make use of fossil fuels. All things considered, it is more environmental to consume more vegetarian or vegan options than it is to consume a diet largely based on meats like beef or mutton; part of the reason for this is that it takes fossil fuel inputs to produce the food to feed the livestock, which would be cut out if the grain produced for animal feed was instead meant for human consumption.

    You can read more about this in this news article, which even admits that not all animal products are created equal, in terms of greenhouse gas emissions: https://nationalpost.com/life/food/concerned-about-the-environmental-impact-of-your-diet-vegetarianism-may-not-be-the-best-way

    Although the video attempts to portray environmentalists in a naive light – and there are probably many that are naive – most of them are well aware of the fact that it is impossible to separate ourselves entirely from fossil fuels, because, as the video points out, they are so endemic in our society. Even Greta Thunberg attempted to reduce her impact by traveling across the ocean by wind-powered boat when she spoke in New York, an effort that seems to have been lost on her critics, who only pointed out the various fossil fuel-related products that she had come into contact with on her journey. However, we do need to start looking at ways to *reduce* our consumption and that is the point of recommending a more vegetable-based diet.

      Levendis,

      If you don’t want to eat beef, mutton, pork, chicken, duck, turkey, horse, etc, etc then I don’t mind at all. But don’t try and force me to eat lentils because of your beliefs.
      By the way, Greta Thunberg did cross the Atlantic on a wind powered boat, however – that meant that two other crew members who would have been there on the outward journey had to fly across the Atlantic to return that boat to Europe, they had to be flown out on one of these –> PLANE
      Which does not run on unicorn farts but kerosene.
      Plus, Greta went home on one of these –> PLANE

    And I wonder what powers all the processing that canola seeds need to become the oil and the greasy spread people eat (and is attractively packaged in plastic).
    Here’s a video that goes through the basic steps …

    Obviously all this technology is powered by sustainable unicorn tears captured in clouds of lunar rainbow crystals.

    • Dave UK says:

      Obviously! You are so right about the unicorn thing.
      One thing that anti meat eaters don’t realise is that if it were not for farming then there would simply not be *any* sheep, pigs, cattle, chickens. Not anywhere, they eat a lot of food, so no one would keep them, they would simply disappear off the face of the earth.

  6. Peter Carroll says:

    I always thought Vegan, was an old Indian term meaning, “bad hunter”.

  7. Norilsk says:

    Only in Canada you say? Pity!

  8. Robert Gipson says:

    Allan Savory has proven–through decades of experience, hard work and *real* science–that increasing the number of grazing animals (and eating them for food) may in fact save the planet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpTHi7O66pI

    Now there’s the *real* “inconvenient truth.”

    Did Brian Blessed have a love child?
    Top level rant!

  10. KevinPaul says:

    The bottom line is, and perhaps the true agenda, without economically sustainable fossil fuels, the eugenicists would get their way, through starvation to death of those unworthy to live, the autonomous status culling of the the weak, poor, under-privileged, vulnerable urban dwellers etc.

  11. M. Simon says:

    For even more amusement. A vegan diet reduces male testosterone.

    Can you say “soy boy”?

    Or “real men eat meat” they don’t sniff candles (Paltrow).
